New York Giants Owner John Mara Essentially Tells Odell Beckham To Just Shut Up & Play

Opposite of the Raiders in the AFC, the Giants are the laughing stock of the NFC, and rightfully so. Sitting at 1-5, New York is trying to avoid going 1-6 in another primetime game Monday night in Atlanta.

A catalyst for much of the chaos in the locker room, Odell Beckham has been critical of his coaching staff and teammates, specially his quarterback Eli Manning.

Most notably, the superstar WR appeared in an ESPN interview with Josina Anderson along side rapper Lil’ Wayne, where he questioned the heart of his teammates and inferred his quarterback and the inability for him to throw it downfield was the reason for the Giants’ offensive struggles.


In a post game press conference following a loss the day after the interview was released, head coach Pat Schumur mentioned that he had a “talk” with Beckham about the interview, reportedly livid at his WR. Now the owner is getting involved.

John Mara addressed reporters on Tuesday, mentioned that he would like for his $90 million WR to essentially shut up and just play.

Mara went on to defend QB Eli Manning, saying he still believes in him, saying “a lot of guys need to play better when you’re 1-5.”
